We present a test of general relativity, the measurement of the Earth’s dragging of inertial frames. Our result is obtained using about 3.5 years of laser-ranged observations of the LARES, LAGEOS, and LAGEOS 2 laser-ranged satellites together with the Earth gravity field model GGM05S produced by the space geodesy mission GRACE. We measure $$\mu = (0.994 \pm 0.002) \pm 0.05$$μ=(0.994±0.002)±0.05, where $$\mu $$μ is the Earth’s dragging of inertial frames normalized to its general relativity… Expand
